Looking for fit, form and function

Engineering the perfect system.

When we purchased our home 7 years ago we used the entire upstairs space for a project/tv room. During the kitchen remodel we decided to put in thermal pane windows. I also insulated the crawl space on either side of the room under the eves. This past summer we decided to paint the walls to brighten up the room a bit. Once we had the new paint on the walls it became abundantly clear that the carpet was REALLY tired and needed to be replaced. But to get new carpet we would have to rip out the banister. I guess you can see where this is going…

We met with James right before Halloween and worked with him to design a new banister. It was installed in no time and we’ve been spending nights and weekend sanding, painting and priming. The space is starting to look really nice. But with our OTA signal about to go digital only we are going to have to upgrade the TV. I’ve put together a master plan to define the BOM to limit runs to Home Depot. Here is what I have in mind. This set up will continue to allow us to watch OTA and PVR HDTV on our lap top, in the office and on the new digital TV.Wiring Plan

  4. […] Now that The Lounge as a room was done it was time to get the gear. One of the motivators for building the lounge was big switch to digital TV. As you might have read we have been watching HDTV on our laptops for the past year or so but most of our TV viewing was done solo. To start I put together a rough list of what I would need. […]
